My fencing-buddy Dave, known variously as that and Dave-in-Germany, is back. He's home. He's out of Iraq. He was there twice. He's out of the Army. ... I think I'm going to go light a candle or something. I didn't realize how much unformed worry there was for him in the back of my mind until I saw him online. I think this is the first time we've had a chance to chat in two to three years.
